Presentation Title: OCULUS Sea® Command and Control System and the PERSEUS Martime Surveillance Eastern Campaign


OCULUS Sea™ is a C2 platform for Integrated Maritime Surveillance. The platform consists of “loosely coupled” National/ Regional and Local C2 Centers which are “centrally governed”.
“Loosely coupled” as C2 Centers are located separately, share their Situational Pictures via a Message Oriented Middleware but preserve their administrational and operational autonomy. “Centrally governed” as there exists a central governance mechanism at the NCC that registers, authenticates and authorizes Regional and Local C2 centers into the OCULUS Sea network.
From operational point of view, OCULUS Sea has been tested under realistic conditions during the PERSEUS [3] Eastern Campaign and has been positively evaluated by Coast Guard officers from Spain and Greece. From Research and Development point of view, OCULUS Sea can act as a test bed for validating any technology development is this domain in the near future.
